EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma and other distressing life experiences.
EMDR has been extensively research and is recommended for trauma treatment.
Our brains have a natural way to recover from traumatic memories and events. Sometimes this natural recovery process can't be resolved without help. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain.
